Overall productive and enjoyable cultural experience
Instructor/Counsellor (Former Employee), Rae Edzo, NWTSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: great learning experience
Cons: the drive to the community which was 100 kilometers away
-on-site housing, great work site, most students energetic and willing to learn
-as a teacher, you get back what you put out
-sometimes a new face, especially male can overwhelm with their power short term (in northern cultures)
-co-workers were supportive and energetic
-as an outsider, the hardest part of the job was being accepted into the community
-another very difficult aspect of the job was that one of my students felt her sister should be in my position and she harassed me throughout the year; fortunately, she did not have a lot of influence on other students
-my favorite part of the job was the rate of advancement; some students started at a Grade 2 level and advanced to a Grade 9 level.
-none of my students tested above a Grade 9 level, but most were ready to start the Teachers Education Program by the end of the year

I was a community adult educator for Aurora College. I managed a community learning centre in a remote aboriginal community. Management and colleagues were very approachable, encouraging and helpful. As community adult educator, it was important to be an ambassador of the college, to be a role model. and set an example of appropriate behaviour. It was very important to be accepted and to be involved in the community.
